Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
All eyes will be on Groupama Arena when Ferencvaros and Genk take on each other in a highly-anticipated Group F game. Second place in the standings is at stake and we are positive that both sides will go for a win in Thursday’s encounter. The Hungarians aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Kecskemeti TE and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Genk. Both Adam Halmai and Barnabas Varga continue to miss out with injuries, while talented midfielder Krisztian Lisztes is a pushing for a start after scoring as a substitute in the last league match.
De Smurfen, on the other hand, aim to make amend for a 3-2 loss to Antwerp. As both sides will go for a win in the Conference League clash, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. Keep in mind that Genk forward Toluwalase Arokodare is banned for the match.
Highlighted Player (Patrik Hrosovsky):
Born in Prievidza, Czechoslovakia, Patrik Hrosovsky is a midfielder who plays for Viktoria Plzen. Patrik Hrosovsky started his youth career at his hometown club Prievidza and he played for the youth team of Trencin as well before joining Viktoria Plzen.
The Slovakian footballer has been playing for the Viktorka ever since, but it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Sokolov, Usti nad Labem and Znojmo on loan as well. Patrik Hrosovsky made his Slovakia debut on November 19, 2014 in a friendly game against Finland.
His main position is central midfield, but he is capable of playing as both defensive midfielder and attacking midfielder as well. Hrosovsky has yet to find the net with the Slovakia national football team, but he found the net for the U21 team in a 7-1 win over Luxembourg at the 2015 European Championship. He has a contract with Viktoria Plzen which expires on June 30, 2019.
Highlighted Team (Ferencvaros):
Established back in 1899, Ferencvaros are the most successful Hungarian club. The Zold Sasok clinched their 30th domestic trophy in the 2018/2019 season, but they eventually failed to book their place in the Champions League. Dinamo Zagreb proved to be a big catch for Ferencvaros in the Champions League play-offs, but the Green Eagles booked their spot in the Europa League group stages for the first time ever the same season.
Ferencvaros are well known for their green and white home kit, but they wear white shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels. Ujpest are considered the club’s fiercest rivals, whilst Ferencvaros and MTK Budapest face each other in the Eternal derby.
Honved are seen as the club’s bitter rivals as well. Back in 1975 the Zold Sasok made it to the UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup, with the team losing to Ukrainian club Dynamo Kiev in the title game. Sandor Kocsis, who scored 75 goals in 68 appearances for the Hungarian national team, is the club’s most notable footballer.
